Membership & Donations

The Humanist Community in Silicon Valley relies exclusively on contributions from generous supporters like you to maintain Humanist House and to provide free programming and events.

You may join us as a member, make a donation, or both. Our bylaws require a one-time application and annual fee for membership. We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, and a Chartered Chapter of the American Humanist Association. Membership fees and donations are tax deductible.

Ways to Contribute

We have multiple ways of accepting contributions:

  • On-line via PayPal, our credit card processor
  • Via check, cash, or credit card brought to a Sunday forum
  • Via check mailed in (with your membership and/or donation form)


If you wish to donate on-line, use the Donate button below. The membership and/or donation form is optional, but helps us stay in touch. If you wish to make this a recurring donation, check the box that says, “Make this a monthly donation”.

We thank you for your contribution!
